Digestive Enzymes Are Key To Your Health
We all need enzymes, they create energy within the body. They are known as “the energy of life.” Without enzymes, our bodies do not properly break down food. Therefore, when food is not broken down properly, our bodies do not absorb vitamins, minerals and amino acids that are needed to function at its best.
All life depends on enzymes
We are all born with a certain number of enzymes. Think of it as a bank account you have a certain amount of these health crusaders. Once you use them all they are gone, and do you now what happens when they are all gone? Premature aging, disease, poor digestion, and death.
So how can we hold on to our enzymes and live a longer fuller life? One thing that “withdraws” your supply very quickly is the process of breaking down food, especially cooked foods.
Your body has to slow down on all it’s other functions, to digest a meal. It is drawing on a lot of enzymes to do this. Do you ever get tired after a big meal? That is because the body is shutting down or reducing other systems so it can send all it’s needed energy to break down the food you just ate. If you are eating a lot of cooked food an enzyme supplement is a good idea to help break down your food.
The Secret Power of Raw Fruits and Vegetables
A way to make “deposits” in your enzyme bank account is to include more raw fruits and vegetables in your diet. The reason for this is really AMAZING. Raw fruits and vegetables come with their own enzymes. That’s right, they are already in there. This means that they are not taking way from your bodies precious reserves. This is nature working at it’s finest. All foods in nature come such as fruits and veggies.
You are what you absorb.
They say, “you are what you eat.” But actually, you are what you absorb.
Enzymes help your body break down and assimilate nutrients in the foods you eat. This also ensures that no food remains in your body undigested, causing gastrointestinal distress or discomfort.
- May enhance nutrient absorption when taken with meals
- Can help to support healthy digestion
- May support healthy immune function
- May be used as part of a natural allergy defense regimen
3 Types of Enzymes
- Metabolic – emitted by our systems such as our tissues and organs
- Digestive – they have the task of breaking down foods such as, carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
- Alimentary – these come from raw live foods that begin the digestive process. These power houses take and put together carbohydrates, proteins and fats in order to maintain our healthy bodies.
Cooking kills all alimentary enzymes, therefore a lack of these important enzymes reduces the production of metabolic functions and in turn everything is weakened and exhausted calling upon the reserves in our bodies. The end result is a weak sick, aging degenerative body with a poor immune system, toxic cells, acidic tissues and overworked organs.
